Hi Yves InDesign XML import is sensitive to carriage-return types. To the best of my recollection, it imports fine with Mac carriage-returns but doesn't like PC/Unix ones. Or it may just be that each version likes the carriage-return convention associated with the platform it lives on. Like Mark Poston, we found the InDesign XML import fairly rubbish and resorted to converting from XML to InDesign tags, which worked well and reliably. -- Mark Barratt Text Matters Information design: we help explain things using language | design | systems | process improvement ______________________________________________________ phone +44 (0)118 986 8313 email markb at textmatters.com web http://www.textmatters.com
